The LLLL.com market is feeling the strains of summer. A lot of short term investors are selling their LLLL.com portfolios because the they don’t want to weather the storm. Domain names cost money and short term investors don’t want to pay the ante. I keep mentioning domain names and domain investing because i believe it to be an integral part of making money online. For most of you, you won’t be able to afford LLL.com domains, but there is still great opportunity in LLLL.com domains.
History says that LLLL.com domain names will prove to be very profitable. Look at LLL.com domains. There was a period when LLL.com investors wanted out. The domainers that held on to these domain names ended up making a lot of money in two years time. You can’t find a LLL.com domain for under $6,000. That’s just for the domain. (no website) Think about it. There are only 17,576 LLL.com domains out there. No matter how ugly the letter combination is, it’s still easy to remember. It’s the same now, but it’s with LLLL.com domains. You can buy a LLLL.com for around 30 dollars for an ugly letter combination. Even these ugly four letter dot coms will increase in value. Two years from now, your 30 dollar investment could be sold for $200. Who know. The best part is, that these domains have value without a developed site. You guys are bloggers so, why not make the domain even more valuable by developing a blog on it.
LLLL dot com domains are great because they are short. They are easy to remember and there is limited supply. There are only 456,976 LLLL.com domains out there. This limited supply almost guarantees appreciation. There are letter combination that don’t mean anything. They don’t roll off the tongue. But, you have to think globally. The “one laptop per child” project and the iphone will make the internet even more popular. Need for short brandable domains will make your LLLL.com investment a safe bet. No matter what new domain extensions come out, dot com will still be king.
You should think long term when you invest in these domains. Don’t try to flip them for an easy profit. Plan a long term stategy. My background is in real estate, so i know the value of long term strategies. Historically, real estate is always a solid investment. Right now, the market is bad. I know cause my business is struggling. But, i also know that when times are bad, money is to be made. I know a lot of nervous real estate investors who want to sell out. But they shouldn’t think like that. Now is the time to buy cause prices are so low. It’s the same with domains. These virtual real estate properties are great investments. LLLL.com domains have gone down in value compared to prices from a few months ago. That’s why it’s a good time to buy. If you bought these domains when prices were high, you should buy more now. It’s called dollar cost averaging. And if you don’t have one yet, invest in one. Or if you are too cheap or can’t afford it, win a free LLLL.com in my contest.
Four letter dot com domains are cheap right now. From the highs of Feb of 2008, it is now cheap to get into this game. I know a lot of you probably don’t care much for domaining. You guys are mostly noobie bloggers. Let me tell you that you can make money online with domains. There are tens of thousands of successful domainers who make full time income by buying and selling domains. I got into this game not to long ago. I actively started buying and selling domains about two months ago. My domain portfolio now hoovers over 300 domains. A lot of them are LLLL.com domains. I’ve probably made over $2,000 buying and selling domain names. It’s a fun little hobby, but i see the potential for more. I can actually see this as a business. In my opinion, domaining is a hell of a lot better then blogging for dollars.
The moral of this story is that you have to seek out new opportunities. The internet is always changing and you have to think and act fast if you want to make money online. Making money by blogging might have been a good thing to do a year ago. But now, the market is flooded. There are only a few MMO bloggers who make any real money. Most medium MMO bloggers are selling out and exiting this niche. Be open to other money making ventures online. A few years from now, you’ll be reading about how you should have bought LLLL.com domains. The writer will mention how you should pick up LLLLL.com domains. Man i wish i could go back to 1996. I’d sell off all of my real estate holdings and buy up every LL, LLL dot com domains. When you’re starting to make money online, don’t just limit yourself to blogging. Noob out!
